As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some banks reinforce routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or greater-value dealings as a way to help in detecting valuation issues."
